Danny H. Nolan, age 76, of Anderson, Indiana went to be with his Savior on January 14, 2021 in Columbus, Indiana due to complications of COVID. He was born to Ben and Doris (Penticuff) Nolan in Celina, Tennessee on November 23, 1944.
Danny worked at Guide Lamp and retired after 30 years. He was a proud union official for 18 of those years at Guide.

Later, Dan accepted Christ as his Savior and became the head groundkeeper and co-head trustee at his church, Crossroads United Methodist Church in Anderson. Dan took care of the weekly mowing and attending to the 17 acres there at Crossroads with his father-in-law, Don Bemish always on the second mower beside him. Dan used to say: “This is the way I worship God, all this beauty out here, we’re blessed!”
